Why must this life be so bitter-sweet,

Why do the stars fall down from Heaven,

Why are all the sweetest songs the shortest,

Why do you wait for true love the longest,

Why on a warm summer night does come the chill,

Why is life sometimes this bitter pill,

Why do the best kissers make the worst lovers,

And the best lovers seem to remain friends...Why,

I ask these questions because I long for answers,

My soul to the inner depths thirsts for the waters to satisfy these longings-to-know,
